Broadcast NT Live: Everyman  (15) Thursday 16 July7pm

National Theatre Live:  Everyman   (15)

BAFTA winner and Academy Award nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama’s oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre’s new Director Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road).

Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.

One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

This production contains depictions of recreational drug use and frequent uses of strong language.

The Merchant of Venice
Wednesday 22 July7pm

RSC Live: The Merchant of Venice

We are delighted to add the Royal Shakespeare Company’s (RSC) productions to our Live Screening programme, commencing with Polly Findlay’s (Arden of Faversham 2014) direction of Shakespeare's uncompromising tragedy, The  Merchant of Venice.

In the melting pot of Venice, trade is God.  With its ships plying the globe, the city opens its arms to all, as long as they come prepared to do business and there is profit to be made.

With the gold flowing all is well, but when a contract between Bassanio and Shylock is broken, simmering racial tensions boil over.   A wronged father, and despised outsider, Shylock looks to exact the ultimate price for a deal sealed in blood.

Cast includes Patsy Ferran (Portia), Makram J Khoury  (Shylock), and Jacob Fortune-Lloyd (Bassanio).
